The Moderator of the Presbyterian Church in Cameroon, the Rt. Rev Fonki Samuel has been summoned to appear at the Buea High Court on Monday April 24, 2017 to answer charges which at Press time have not been mentioned. However, local media sources say the issue is related to the so-called Consortium of Parents created by the Biya Francophone regime and headed by senior army officers.
The Information has been confirmed by a close aid of the Moderator and by the Communication Secretary of the PCC, Rev.MOKOKO Mbue Thomas who however said he has not yet read the summons but was aware that his Superior will appear in Court next week.
The Moderator reportedly posted a message to Christians in which he observed, “Dear all, I have been summoned at the Buea High Court on Monday 24th of April 2017.The summons is in my name. We need your prayers. Moderator PCC.”
Last week some Christians had dispelled rumors that the Moderator had been ordered to appear in court. A sister publication, Cameroun Info.Net reported that observers hold the affair may be connected with the non resumption of classes by Presbyterian Schools.
The summons comes barely one week after Roman Catholic Bishops in Bamenda received a ‘Direct Summon’ form from the CPDM Consortium of Parents claiming damages amounting to the sum of 150.000.000 FCFA.
